- About The Experience
Near beaches, close to Barcelona, and large enough to house a large family or group of friend… this has it all, and then some! Dating back to the 16th century, the main house has been beautifully restored to 21st century living, while still maintaining the ambience of its unusual castle-like architecture. There is a small cottage which adjoins the property and is available for those taking the main house. The villa is private yet close to villages, important cities and near the beaches. It has a solar heated private pool with an incredible view of the countryside and perfect for relaxing and reading a good book – and there are lots of outdoor games to keep young and old fully entertained.
